naps and grave digging

This morning I woke up at ten minutes to five, ready for my day. I got up, read my scriptures, checked all my normal internet sites I go to in the morning and then at about 6:30 I went back to bed for an hour. Before going back to bed, I decided I really needed to take a nap by my Mom this afternoon. So I did...kind of. I spent some alone time with her complaining about Gina, and telling her I was mad at her. I think we both felt better when I was done.

I'm in Bremerton tonight. Dad and I went to the cemetery and and worked on Mom's grave. There's not grass on it right now because the gravedigger had to take the top piece of land off. It wasn't settling right. Dad and I dug up 2-4 inches off the top of her grave that was mostly sand, then Dad put good dirt and grass seed down.  Here are the pictures to show you the process.

 While Dad and I were finishing up Mom's grave, the girls went around the cemetery and looted fresh flowers from other people's graves. Unethical? yes. Too late? yes. The flowers are pretty.

 I mentioned this morning that I was going to take a nap by my Mom and my friend, Michael told me to tell her 'Hi' for him. I did. I also stopped over to his Dad and told him 'Hi' too.
I sure miss my Mom and Dave.
